This place is amazing! We stayed for a few nights in the India room which was clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The couple who run the b&b were so nice and welcoming from the start and were keen to help us in any way they could. Would totally recommend this place to anyone :)

Firstly, I got a very warm welcome. I got a cup of tea on arrival and the hosts gave me a map of the local area with a suggested walking route marked out.
